The first word I think of is beautiful! It is an awe inspiring experience to be in this basilica. The intricate details in the art work and the building itself is amazing. Incredible!

“Fantastic church, not the greatest venue for vocal soloists.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Went to a classical concert here.
4-5 individual performers.
Great for trumpet, organ but due to the high ceilings voices (which were stunning) got lost. Not the right acoustics sadly.

Most impressive cathedral. The alters the ceilings the paintings are something to behold. Walking up the steps and entering this cavernous cathedral was a wonderful experience.
